This groom danced to his bride — and FELL in love, literally


GREATER NOIDA: Nobody can accuse Amit Yadav of constructing a false proclamation of love. After all, he has fallen in love, actually.
As many as 15 individuals, including the groom, fell right into a drain when a concrete bridge on which they were dancing collapsed in Hoshiyarpur village on Saturday night. Three kids suffered accidents and two of them needed to be admitted to a clinic for a while.

The twist of fate passed off around nine.30pm. Most of the baratis were already carried out with their strikes and had proceeded to the Olive Green wedding ceremony banquet. But the groom and his 14 pals were not carried out yet. As they danced to the tunes of Punjabi numbers, the bridge resulting in the banquet may not bear their weight and got here crashing down after about 10 minutes.

The embarrassment induced the baratis to threaten criminal action towards the banquet owner. The wedding ceremony, on the other hand, resumed after the landlord presented a compensation of Rs 3 lakh to groom’s family.

Amit Yadav, a businessman from Indirapuram in Ghaziabad, had come to Noida to marry Sonam, a resident of Kondli village in New Delhi. The concrete bridge and the banquet corridor, each painted white, had grabbed the eyeballs of Sonam’s father Phool Kumar, who had booked it for his daughter’s wedding ceremony on February nine.

“The baratis had been welcomed and most of the people had long past inside of. But the groom and a few others endured dancing on the bridge. It collapsed from the left after about 10 minutes and all of them fell into the drain,” the banquet guard said.

Though a police team reached the spot, no complaint was once lodged because the banquet authorities and the groom’s family reached a compromise.


“All were rescued safely, aside from two eight-year-old youngsters, who needed to be taken to clinic. However, they, too, were discharged after a while,” said Mithilesh Upadhyay, the SHO of Sector 24 police station.


The groom’s family claimed a few of them lost their phones and jewellery in the muck. The homeowners of the banquet took accountability of the twist of fate. “We returned the money. The wedding ceremony resumed and the guests left with a grin,” said OP Sharma, the banquet owner.


Amit, in the meantime, would have said in his prayers: “All’s well that ends well.”
